Things to know before you get started.
6 Steps to Large Scale Land Leveling
  1. 1. Research your site's needs

    Pay special attention to ground drainage. This is very important when it comes to maintaining the land in the future, especially regarding plots of land that are multiple acres in size.

  2. 2. Get quotes

    Obtain at least three estimates from landscaping or excavation companies. Remember that this cost can vary once the project begins due to unforeseen circumstances.

  3. 3. Check up on the companies

    Get references and check them. Ensure that the company is licensed and carries liability insurance. Check to be sure that a foreman or project manager will always be onsite during the job.

  4. 4. Stay legal

    Pull necessary permits before the work begins. Permitting varies greatly depending on the location, so a competent land leveling company is always aware of the type of permits required.

  5. 5. Ask the right questions

    Check to see if the company uses the right equipment for the job. Land leveling requires a variety of machinery, and all equipment should be in good working order.

  6. 6. Stick to a schedule

    When bad weather interrupts a project, the timetable may end up changing. A good contractor is able to reschedule projects quickly and complete them with minimal delay.
